We had a one night stay here while in Greymouth and we were impressed.. The room was pleasantly furnished and very comfortable. The unit was spotless. It came with complete kitchen facilities, with top quality appliances, and the usual tea, coffee, hot chocolate and coffee plunger. There was a spa bath with the shower over it and heating lights in... More

We stayed here for one night on our way through the west coast. Very friendly reception and great room. Bed was comfy, room was very clean and pleasant for the night. Free wifi as well. Would recommend for a short stay.

Our family name is Gable so we found that we just had to stay here while on our visit, the staff in reception were amazing. We arrived much later than we had planned due to road closures, the staff were very accommodating

The facilities were warm, clean and tidy and great value for money, although a bit dated in decor and the hot water run out mid spa, we were still quite happy with the room over all. Centrally located and we couldn't hear any road noise (from the rear unit we were in) which was appreciated. The host was incredibly friendly... More

We (a party of four adults) stayed here for one night - we had a spa double room and a two bedded unit. Booking and check in was stressfree and when we arrived at the Gables we were impressed by the cleanliness of the grounds. This attention to detail followed through into the units themselves - they we spacious, cosy... More

The owner is awesome and very welcoming! He recommended us things to do in Greymouth and also provides some tips for our road trip to Franz Josef. Rooms is very clean and smells good. Another plus point is that we can park our rental car right outside our room. Definitely five stars room with five stars service.

I’m only really posting just to add our 5* score as pretty much everything has already been said. Clean, comfortable, courteous, good value, well equipped - what more could you want ? Oh, and only about 200yds from the supermarket one way and 100yds from a restaurant the other way. We were also impressed with the cleaning process we were... More

The owner is very helpful and courteous. He gave us lots of information and recommendations on arrival. Our two bedroom unit was quiet, spotlessly clean, comfortable with great beds. Highly recommended.
